A robot has been designed by scientists which is capable of helping patients maintain personal hygiene.

Researchers at the Georgia Tech's Healthcare Robotics Lab have developed the robo-nurse, named Cody, reports Live Science.

Cody has demonstrated its ability to clean a human patient's arms and legs.

It has limbs with reduced stiffness in case of accidental bumping, and is designed to exert a very low amount of pressure while sponging down a patient. There's also a stop button ready for humans to press just in case.

The robot nurse joins a line of serious bots that can do everything from robotic surgery to folding your laundry.
